3 1977-1980 FERRARI 308 GTB/GTS
WHY IT’S SO AFFORDABLE There are plenty of them about, but suddenly values for this 1970s icon are getting red hot.
Ferrari has built a lot of stunning cars – think 250GT SWB, 250 California, Daytona, F40 and a slew of other multi-million-pound museum pieces and track stars. All great, of course, and the very essence of Enzo.
Still, the one car that the world knows as the Ferrari sports car they could see themselves driving is the delightful and gorgeous 308 GTB hardtop and its targa-roofed GTS stablemate.
The beautiful Pininfarina lines, those distinctive rear buttresses and air intakes, the simple motifs formed by the wheels and tail lights – they all spell classic Ferrari. It’s powerful, responsive and exciting to drive. In short, a masterpiece that goes like the clappers thanks to its 2926cc V8 engine. We just had to make it the one Ferrari worth taking out a small second mortgage for. Early GRP-bodied cars command a big premium for their purity these days, so the steel-bodied ones from 1977-80 offer better value.
